The Quick Response (QR) code – a machine-readable optical label containing information about the item to which it is attached – was first designed in the ’90s for the automotive industry in Japan. Since then QR codes have also become popular outside the automotive industry, and are now used in applications to include product tracking, item identification, time tracking, document management, and general marketing.

You just have to scan it. But, before you scan it, you have to generate it. SAP Business One introduces a new functionality allowing you to generate and assign QR codes to marketing documents. Enter all relevant values in the General Settings > QR Codes tab:

In the marketing documents, a new field is added in the Accounting tab, where you can either enter text or use a formatted search for generating the required value:

Now, just add the QR code field into your Crystal print layout, and it will appear on the printout.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0, and SAP Business One 10.0 version for SAP HANA. Please get in touch if you would like to upgrade to version 10.0.
